It's Just so funny how much he hates CNN

Many of us feel CNN is garbage television. Frankly, it feels justified because CNN destroyed their own credibility.

Its also worth noting CNN's ratings have declined because there is no reason to watch it unless you really enjoy Trump bashing. Which is a demographic MSNBC is also vying for.

Would you put Fox news in the same category as CNN.  Just wondering because if CNN is totally Anti Trump, then Fox news would be considered their direct opposite.  If any news site only negative or positive then they both can not be trusted as news sources.

I can't believe this needs to be clarified...

From https://www.merriam-webster.com

democracy: a : government by the people; especially : rule of the majority
b : a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections

republic: a (1) : a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and who in modern times is usually a president (2) : a political unit (such as a nation) having such a form of government
b (1) : a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law (2) : a political unit (such as a nation) having such a form of government

These are not incompatible. In fact, the definitions have a lot of overlap and the US system fits both definition. The fact that we elect representatives to legislate rather than have the people legislate directly still fits the definition of democracy.

It's a Democratic Republic.

you forgot that the american people must abide by the constitution which is not democratic at all and thank god for that

when the american people are ultimately duped into throwing away the constitution is when the floodgates will really open and shit will really hit the fan

Fearmongering, its already a tactic by left here in the states.

The nonsense you're spewing is what helped a network like CNN become a joke. We've come full circle in this discussion.

Some would argue Obama did some terrible things, objectively. A president making unpopular decisions isn't equal to dictatorship.

No, the things Obama did were nothing in comparison.

He made health insurance widely available, he cared about the environment and our future generations, he worked with his allies to keep the free world safe and he did not bow to dictators. He got Osama bin laden, he didn't tell us how great and powerful Putin is in a shameful bowing display. He was smart and strong.

Trump has done the opposite. He is a menace to the free world. You underestimating how destructive he can be whether by ignorance or malice. That is what will come full circle for you.

Fear mongering has nothing to do with politics. The left is the politic current that cares more about the society, the population, health, education, it's well being. The right is the politic that treats people has sacks of dirt in favor of the rich. It's a crude way of putting it but that is what differentiates them.

Heck your fearmongering arguments mirrors what was said back when Hitler came into power. It's ok, he is not serious, he won't do it... and then a reality check. This is how it begins.

The decline of the US has been brought by the American right. Your political system is a joke (2 parties lol). Your insistence in not opening your eyes is what is leading you down the drain. Heck, you hardly have a left at all because the DMC is more right than left. You have no idea what the left is and you believe the lies the republicans feed you and results in a neutered uneducated population that can be easily controlled and taken advantage of. A joke at your expense.

"he didn't tell us how great and powerful Putin is in a shameful bowing display."

do you have a link for this? or did you just pull that from the aether?

 

"he cared about the environment and our future generations"

the man who launched more drone strikes than any other cared about the environment? do go on, expand upon this some more please

 

"he did not bow to dictators."

i'm sure that the people in the wreck of a country lybia is now are totally thankful that obama bombed them to oblivion

 

" You underestimating how destructive he can be whether by ignorance or malice. "

evidence?

 

"The left is the politic current that cares more about the society, the population, health, education, it's well being. "

bullshit, hitler was enthusiastically brought into power

what people like you never understand is that the threat is coming from where you do not expect, which is actually why hitler was so popular

its also hilariously ironic that hitler championed some of the same values often pushed by the left

 

"You have no idea what the left is and you believe the lies the republicans feed you and results in a neutered uneducated population"

Well. I never said the CCN reporter wasn't being an ass. - I don't know much about CNN because they simply don't exist here, but either way. It is what it is.
But you just don't limit press, regardless of what or how they report on something, let the market decide on their outcome instead.

He didn’t limit the press though. He’s not banning them from reporting anything, he doesn’t have that power. He banned her from attending because she was being an ass at the press conference, not because of what she was going to report on. I get what you are saying and I generally agree but that’s not the case here.

Hence why I stipulated I don't know much about American law or news. - Just giving my own perspective on things.
And good to know.

I find that Fox News dedicates more time to opposing views than MSNBC and CNN. While Fox News certainly panders to the right, I watch a few programs knowing I'll get views from multiple sides and they give time to left wingers. Primarily I just watch Tucker Carlson (conservative host) and Kennedy (libertarian host). Two hosts who have been critical of Trump.

CNN and MSNBC aren't really respected networks post Trump. Meanwhile dems assume Fox News is all praise of Trump, which isn't reality.

I don't put Fox in the same category as CNN, but I also don't think people should just consume Fox News all day.

He banned her because she asked a question regarding Michael Dean Cohen's conversation recordings between himself and Trump. He felt that the question was rude. lmao

edit: on a side note, refusing to answer a question in itself is an answer.

The CNN reporter was also representing FOX, ABC, NBC, and I believe CBS. So by banning her, they all missed out on this press event.

To be fair. It's not like Trump hasn't been downright rude before either. :P
He deserves everything he gets, he ain't innocent. Haha

This just looks like you cant give a decent answer.
